Six-hundred acres. A high-performance marine facility. Three-and-a-half kilometers of breakwaters. Nineteen shops. Power. Roads. Sewage. Fresh water and fire-fighting services. And a 210 by 44-meter shiplift—India's first indigenously built shiplift. Completed in record time and awarded a rare, five-star rating by the British Safety Council.
Over the course of the project the L&T team faced down a series of major challenges from cyclones to a vendor bankruptcy. And they overcame them all.
The southeast coast of India is remote. Basic infrastructure—roads, manpower and housing was severely limited.
No less than three cyclones swept through, damaging equipment and slowing progress.
Massive plates for the shiplift were marooned off Greece as one vendor went bankrupt.
A ban on river sand meant L&T had to crush rock to create their own.
The skill and experience of the Realization team
fostered broad cooperation on SMART Project Delivery.
Creating a world-class shipyard and a 200m shiplift involved many challenges. Yet the project was completed in 28 months. Realization was involved in coordination, planning and monitoring the project throughout.
The SMART System helped L&T teams by providing them with forward looking information. They could prioritize and focus on the right problems, and know which issues to act on. Powered by:
